    This album seems to be a little bit underrated. Unjustly. Tracks like Assimilate and Dead Lines served as a blueprint for what became Dark Electronics in the 1990s (yelworC, Placebo Effect, Splatter Squall) and, of course, the North American Electro-Industrial movement (Numb, Mentallo & The Fixer, Yeht Mae, ...).

        Brilliant album, mixing an artistic horror atmosphere with danceable thumpy electronics. It's the great spooky mood that makes it the sonic adventure it is. What a disco in an ancient haunted mansion would be like. Let the ectoplasm flow... Too bad they gave up much of that atmosphere for less interesting and more brutish noise and effects on later albums.

        Years of confusion about track titles resulted from errors in identifying tracks and sides on label and sleeve on my copy of this release.

          I used to love this album, it isn't a bad album, but it falls much more on the synthpop side of their back catalog than the later material. It's a dance album, which honestly at times is sort of hokey and cheesy if your not into the whole goth synthpop thing. Their is at least two Skinny puppy fan bases, this one is usually the goth fans favorite.
